    well, you'd think after being in Auckland for so long I'd would have visited the most famous sites there by now, one tree hill! Yesterday was the first time I visited, and it took my cousin visited from Austria to finally get me there.

    Not exactly great pics, i had to battle with the rain to whole time I was there. Its quite an interesting place with an interesting history - I will have to go back to get better pics:

    yeah, kiddies take the volcanic rock and spell out all sorts of stuff, from chinese charactors to rubgy epitaphs - but its mostly initials and names. I couldn't quite make out what they are saying.

    Both interesting. I like the first one best. There really is a sense of depth and speed, and dramatic sky and lighting, I feel like I'm zooming down that road.

    These are great! We used to walk up there - but I thought it was "no tree hill" now :scratch:

    What amazing tones in the green of the hill. Looks like a great spot!

    i was just wondering...did you crop the first one from the bottom? or its a full frame?

    i really like the grass/sky ratio in second one

    great colours

    oh, and those 'letter rocks'...ha ha - they just 'rocks'! -:)

    thanks for your comments all!

    yeppers, actually I cropped a large slab o' real estate from the right side on the last one, the sun had just come out and really over exposed the sky to the left. I kinda like the 'square crop' look on pics :)

    Great photos! I like #1 best, for its heavy skies combined with light clouds and shiny green.
